With time expiring … or expired … Alex Biega ripped a shot right through Millan. The entire arena went nuts, understandably: BU fans thought they’d won (one ref signaled no goal, with review pending). Harvard (a.k.a. Northeastern and the slowly emerging Boston College) fans cheered out of incredulous hope and surprise …

… but when all was said and done, it wasn’t even close. Triple-zeros were on the clock before the puck even appeared in the overhead images, and on to the finals go the Terriers. Can’t say I’m happy about it — even as a Boston University alumnus — because a) I’m also the ECAC correspondent, and Harvard played the grittiest of gritty games and b) BU had the loss coming. They weren’t terribly sharp, they didn’t demonstrate much killer instinct, and their fans sickened me.

Oh well, on to Game 2! At least you’ve all got your money’s worth so far …

Game 1 final: Boston University 4, Harvard 3.
